So, I am still in San Diego and I have been doing a little bit of training, plenty of beer drinking and I have managed to get quite a bit of work done for both Skinfit and my coaching business.
I have been to masters swim practice the last two mornings and it is kicking my butt! I haven't really been in the water much since June when my life kind of got "disrupted" so let's just say it is rough going in the pool every morning. I am actually enjoying being back in the water but I am so out of shape it is all I can do to hold 1:20's. Plus, my muscles just can't handle the load yet. Regardless, I am going to keep at it so that when December hits I have a good feel for the water and a good base fitness from which to build on. I actually felt much better this morning then I did yesterday so there were a few signs of hope during the workout =) and my fitness tends to return fairly quickly so at weeks end I am sure things will be much smoother (I hope!). It is so nice to have a solid group to swim with. Up in Monterey the swimming is really lacking so being down here and having so many resources makes it so much more challenging and enjoyable. I really can't wait for us to finally move into our place down here and call S.D. home!
Yesterday was a great day...James and I hit masters and then we, with the addition of Beth, went for a road ride and enjoyed the awesome weather.

It was just a nice day of training and relaxing in a coffeshop. Then for dinner we went and ate some killer seafood in Cardiff. There are so many great places to eat around here...too bad I am broke and a starving athlete now. Jess and I will have to stick with red beans and rice =) I will be here through sunday b/c James and I teaming up for a 12 hour mountain bike race out in Temecula...good times for sure!
